Finish this simile: English class is like...

Answers

English class is like receiving presents on your birthday

or

English class is like having to sit through a movie you didn’t want to see but will be tested on when it’s over.


Similes are comparisons using the words “like” or “as” in order to give readers a better sense of understanding when there may otherwise be little understanding or not the understanding a writer wishes to convey. What this means is that authors will compare something that may not be known to readers to something that most likely will be known in order to present the best image understood by the most readers.  Because not everyone may have the same perspective of an English class as you, for instance, one way to convey an idea of what English class is to you, the use of a simile would work well.  If you enjoyed your English class you might compare it to something you know your general audience enjoys and write something like “English class is like receiving presents on your birthday” because of how each day’s knowledge is wonderful surprising experience for you.  If you hated English class, you might write something like English class is like having to sit through a movie you didn’t want to see but will be tested on when it’s over.  As you can see the use of similes make writing more expressively.

First of all, you need to know what a simile is in order to complete this sentence. A simile is a rhetorical figure of speech in which you are comparing two or more things using words such as like or as. In the sentence above, you are already using the word like so you need to compare English class with something else. For example:
English class is like a tree full of savory fruit.

Read the following excerpt from "The Gift of the Magi" and answer the question. A furnished flat at $8 per week. It did not exactly beggar description, but it certainly had that word on the lookout for the mendicancy squad. In the vestibule below was a letter-box into which no letter would go, and an electric button from which no mortal finger could coax a ring.
The passage above provides a description of which story element?

character
climax
rising action
setting

Answers

Answer: The correct answer is setting.

Explanation:

    Briefly, the Gift of the Magi is the story of a couple who had no money to buy each other's Christmas gifts. She sells her hair and buys a watch chain for her husband and he sells his watch and buys her hair combs for her beautiful hair. After giving each other's gifts, they soon realizes that they are useless. She no longer has her hair to use the combs and he no longer has his watch to enjoy the wacth chain. However, their gifts appear out of love and sacrifice.

   In the excerpt, the author gives a description of the place (setting) where the couple lives, a very modest cheap home. Their house is so simple that it's not worth a description. It seems to be a lonely place for them, they don't get any letters ( ...below was a letter-box into which no letter would go), and nobody visits them ( an electric button from which no mortal finger could coax a ring). This excerpt sets the mood for the story.    

It sounds to me like they are talking about the setting

Read the two passages. Passage One

Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now!
Passage Two

It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound.
Based on these two passages, which statement is true?


Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own.


Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not.


Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence.


Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

Answers
